(Seriously, y’all, I could not stop laughing as I wrote this, but one of my challenges this month was to write another poem, so here ya go.)


A Joint Adventure


Grind, scrape, stuff.

Roll, lick, press.

Flick. Flick.

Light it on fire.

Puff. Puff.


Smoke swirls in light,

Twisting and turning,

Spinning over itself.


Shift, groan, creak.

Stand, wobble, press

Hand to forehead.

Sway in place.

Stomach grumbles.


Flour wafts in the air,

Covering and coating,

Caking in grooves.


Scoop, whisk, scrape.

Measure, dump, stir.

Preheat to 350.

Grease and pour.

Bake. Cool.


Family peers in curiously,

Hovering and tasting,

Hungry little animals.


Sweet, cinnamon, butter.

Fluffy, gooey, warm.

Nom. Nom.

Eat it up.

Nap time.
